As we shelter-in-place, I’ve had a few folks reach out for writing help now that they have more time on their hands and/or are finally ready to start that book they’ve always wanted to write.

To that end, I’ve decided to offer my 8-week Memoir Mastery course at a 50% discount as a way of making it accessible to more folks.

Will this solve the very-real challenges we’re all facing? Absolutely not.

But it might help provide you with a focus and a bit of grounding during an otherwise incredible challenging time.

shelter-in-place write a book write a memoirAnd writing memoir in particular can help you:

  • find meaning during a challenging time
  • reassess and reclaim your personal narrative
  • tap into your creativity
  • learn how to start your project
  • create momentum as well as a consistent writing habit
  • help you navigate the very-real challenges of having too much time on your hands and not enough structure to finally get going on that book you’ve always wanted to write
  • connect in community
  • get accountability and support.

In the scheme of things, this isn’t big, I know, but it’s a small way I can support my fellow writers and perhaps even foster a bit of creativity and grounding during this wild time.

Here’s a brief description of the course:

Memoir Mastery: How to Write a Compelling Memoir 

In this comprehensive 8-week course, you’ll go from feeling alone, confused and overwhelmed to feeling excited and supported in the power of your story, clear in its scope, and confident in the craft and technique of creating a compelling memoir.

With 6 online modules, 4 live coaching calls and a secret FB group, you’ll get plenty of support and accountability as well as laser-focused coaching within a wonderfully supportive community. You’ll leave this course with a strong foundation for your memoir as well as a clear set of next steps.

We start this Monday 3/30.

Everything is online, to be taken at your own pace, with lifetime access to the materials. There’s a DIY option as well as live/supported option with a secret FB group and 4 Zoom calls for those of you looking for community, support and accountability.

  • Instead of $249, the Standard version of the course is now $124.50 (or $44.50 for 3 months). Please note: this is less than the cost of a private session with me.
  • Instead of $479, the Supported version is now $239.50 (or $82.50 for 3 months)
  • Remember: you can take everything at your own pace. So if you’re feeling scattered (who isn’t!), please know that you’ll have access to these materials for the lifetime of the course (at least 3+ years).
  • Even if you simply take this time to plant the seeds of your memoir, you’ll still have the entire course to support you once we’re on the other side of this crisis and navigating whatever our “new normal” is going to look like.

Here’s what our Memoir Mastery graduates had to say about the course:

In addition to her very professional and useful instruction on the craft of writing, Tanja’s personal touch, guidance, and support stand out as some of the great hallmarks of this course. S.S.

How to write a memoirTanja provides a very thorough step-by-step guide from inception to completion of your memoir. She is able to meet each writer where they are, while offering generous and skillful guidance. I couldn’t have dreamed up a better mentor for this process, as she creates a safe space to develop as a writer, explore vulnerable moments, and make meaningful progress on my work. J.F.

The structure of the videos and lessons interspersed with the calls was fantastic. [The class was] super helpful and necessary to create direction for my book and writing. I am so grateful to you and this journey and discoveries… [Your] course helped focus me on what matters most in my journey and my writing. The combination of skill based activities as well as encouraging conversation and direction has kept me on the right course for writing my memoir. –JGS

My favorite parts of your course were your normalizing, encouraging, “mindset” and inner critic pieces. And the “where you might get stuck” pieces. I’ve taken years-worth of creative writing courses/workshops and everyone teaches the same craft techniques (understandably), but I’ve never been as encouraged and given the most practical approaches to dealing with my neurosis/inner critic for writing, as I have with you. It’s one of the many reasons I want to keep working with you. –C.C.

Again, this offering isn’t earth-changing, I know. If you’re facing serious challenges right now, writing a memoir probably isn’t where your energy and focus need to be. But if you’re looking for some writing support, grounding, creativity and community during this incredibly challenging time, I’d be honored to walk alongside you during your writing journey.

Stay safe!
